Back in Florida 


Yesterday afternoon, we departed from my Parents house in NJ, and 996 miles later, pulled into our driveway here in the airpark in Florida early in the morning. North of DC is was raining with accidents, and northern Virginia was it’s typical 60 miles of pointless traffic, but the over night drive was very nice. It was a full moon that rose just after sunset illuminated the clear skies so well, you probably could have driven the run with the headlights off. I-95 was empty, and a set the cruise control at 74 and drove all night with the radio off, just thinking of things I have seen and done with builders in the last six weeks on the road.



Above, an actual sign in the I-95 Florida State welcome center, right next to the parking lot. I like living in a state with serious wildlife. Given a choice between water moccasins and DC beltway traffic, I opt for poisonous snakes.


I am back in Florida for two weeks, to replenish the stocks of parts on the shelves here, and get through the next rounds of orders. In the next few days I will be highlighting products we have on the shelves and in process, to give a better look at how our inventory has been greatly updated. Tomorrows story will be about Pietenpol Motor mounts.


After this shop phase in Florida, I will be flying back out to northern California to continue the western builders tour.






About William Wynne
I have been continuously building, testing and flying Corvair engines since 1989. Information, parts and components that we developed and tested are now flying on several hundred Corvair powered aircraft. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Professional Aeronautics and an A&P license from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and have a proven 20 year track record of effectively teaching homebuilders how to create and fly their own Corvair powered planes. Much of this is chronicled at and in more than 50 magazine articles.

    At least the snakes in the Florida pond are honest, they just want to eat, defend themselves and make little snakes so there is no malice in their actions. As for the snakes in DC I think a whack with a big stick is in order.
